Imaging with Fork mount ???

I was looking at the DSI III for sale in the classifieds and wondered if it could be used on a fork mount (CPC1100).
I thought stacking multiple frames may overcome the obvious shortcoming of not having EQ Mount.

I am guessing no due probably to the length of exposure for Deep Sky Imaging and field rotation.

I have been advised the wedge for the CPC is, well, not well regarded.
(And Meade wedge is probably not compatible).

I have heard of Meade de-rotaters.
But not sure whether this would be practicle either.

The CPC has tracking, but it is not all that smooth.
And I dont have a guide scope.

Without being too ruthless, tell me if I am just dreaming at this stage.
